Perlin was tired of living with roommates and was passionate about sustainable living, so building an off-grid tiny homemade perfect sense.

He lives in Byron Bay, Australia, where he has a solar-powered tiny house with a rainwater catchment system. The entire home is steel-framed. Enjoy the photo tour and Q&A with Perlin below!

Rodney and Marcel worked together to turn a shed kit into a beautiful 24×24 cabin in Alaska, complete with a 10×24 covered front porch and two queen-sized bedrooms.

The bedrooms and full bathroom span the back of the home, but in the front, there’s a lovely great room with a living room and kitchen built for entertaining. Could you live in this?

Originally, Maggie and her father were thinking of building a full-time-residence tiny home, but when her pottery hobby really took off back in 2020, the two decided a mobile pottery studio was in order.

Their 12×8 creation is absolutely stunning, and it has heating, AC, electricity, and plumbing. It acted as her storefront for a while, but now it’s parked on the land where Maggie and her fiancé are building their dream home. She was kind enough to do a Q&A with us, which you can read below!

Paul was working in corporate sales and found himself less and less satisfied with life. When he came across van life online, he was inspired! He bought the van and spent two years converting it while he was still working. He moved in right before March 2020 planning to teach yoga.

While solo travel during the lockdowns was definitely challenging, Paul didn’t give up! Eventually he even bought a short bus and converted it to better suit his needs. Check out the pictures below and enjoy the Q&A with Paul below.

When their lease was close to expiring, Hannah and Danny knew they had no desire to renew it, but also weren’t sure about their next move. That’s when they landed on a bus conversion! Both of them quit their jobs, so they could work full-time on the bus conversion (they’ve since gotten travel/remote work).

The bus is gorgeous, with a spacious kitchen and a great back-of-the-bus design with a side-by-side bed and bathroom that allows for a spacious shower. In the front of the bus, there’s an L-shaped couch that doubles as a guest bed, and a special puppy corner for their dog! What do you think?

Mike is a professional snowboarder who purchased 84 acres in Tahoe on a huge granite slab and transformed it into a hand-crafted rock cabin with a hot tub, cold plunge, ski lift, and even an onsite Overlander that he rents out on Airbnb!

It took Mike years and years to get the property he bought in 2005 to where it is today, and he did it with lots of help from friends and family. While the off-grid spot is still closer to glamping, it offers all the amenities of home and Mike did such an incredible job designing this masterpiece. Enjoy the tour!

Some years ago, David was inspired to build his own tiny house — and he did! He moved it across the country, met Erin, and the couple moved it back across the country to start their own market farm operation selling organic vegetables and mushrooms.

The initial cost of the house was about $30,000, and it’s all paid off now. After a long day at work, the couple can easily walk home and clean up in the large walk-in shower in the bathroom. What do you think of their set-up?

Jeff is a personal chef who bought a van to act as his daily driver, adventure vehicle, and a unique setting for his private meal offerings. Now you can get a professionally-prepared meal from Jeff and eat at his U-shaped dinette or outside at his slide-out table.

While he doesn’t live in the van full-time, Jeff likes having the option to travel and take vacations from his home base in Florida. As you’d expect, he has tons of counter prep space inside his rig, making it easy for him to prepare something delicious!
